Fish Fillet with Tausi (Fermented Black Beans)

I used to hate this dish when I was young, I didn’t like the taste of fermented black beans and the milk fish has too many fine bones that makes it difficult to eat.  My mother, she used to make it regularly- no matter how much complaining/whining I did- hoping that I will eventually like it. After so many years, finally, I am able to appreciate this dish and make it for my family too, but my little boy doesn’t like the black beans..no surprise there, I guess. 😉

When making this dish, usually whole or milk fish slices are fried then served with adobo-like sauce with fermented black beans. I make mine with fish fillet and skipped the frying part. It’s easier, quicker and healthier.

The recipe below is for 3-4 persons, feel free to adjust to your own taste or family size.

Instructions

  • Lightly season fish fillet pieces with salt and pepper, set aside. Heat cooking oil and sesame oil in a pan over medium heat.
  • Add garlic, onion, saute until fragrant then add black beans. Cook for about a minute then add a cup of water; season with fish sauce ( or soy sauce if you want), and a little sugar and black pepper; bring to a boil then add the fish fillet pieces.
  • Cook for about 5 minutes, then invert the fish fillet pieces and cook for about 3-5 minutes more.
  • Make the slurry by mixing cornstarch with 1 tablespoon water then add a little of this to the pan ( you may use all of it or not depending on how you want the consistency of your sauce); bring to a boil, check the seasoning then turn off the heat.
  • Sprinkle scallions and serve with rice. Enjoy! 🙂

Notes

You may use bangus (milkfish) belly or boneless bangus fillet, but I suggest that you fry it first, it just taste better that way.
